Any tests submitted that do not meet the above rules will be deleted without notice.
Members are welcome to comment on the submitted tests.

Once exception will be made to the thread creator ‘jcusimano2’ to allow the submitted test to remain. :slight_smile:

And I guess this would be first donation to HOF

BTW My computer just barely makes 20x as you can see I have it maxed out!! 18x is a charm though. but even with the 20x struggle, great quality!! This is my baby though and i’m keeping it till it shoots craps. Before I maxed it I could barely get 12x now all UDMA mode 4 on dvd rw & mode 5 on HDD. :slight_smile:

Kick ass jitter too!! I love these drives :iagree:

[QUOTE=jcusimano2;2062320]Does anyone mind if we start a hall of fame for the 72xx series?? if so then mods can put rules at front (Don’t be too lienient this is the HOF!!)[/QUOTE]This sounds like a good idea, but why not make the thread open to all NEC/Optiarc drives?

I’ll take a look at the other HOF threads around the forum after work and make some basic rules.


#3

That’s a very good idea.


#4

The rules are added.
Have fun. :wink:


#5

count me in :wink: all Optiarcs sounds good also.


#6

A bit confused – rules say PIE total less than 15000 so how does the first scan qualify?:confused:


#7

[quote=Dalen Quaice;2062669]A bit confused – rules say PIE total less than 15000 so how does the first scan qualify?:confused:[/quote] That is the single exception mentioned in the rules (which were added after the thread had a few posts):

Once exception will be made to the thread creator [B]‘jcusimano2’ [/B]to allow the submitted test to remain. :slight_smile:

Ok, it is clear now… thanks for the clarification.

Here are the attachments.



#12

Does this look ok for here?
I’m asking because the drive decided to slowdown to 12x.


#13

Added a rule:
[B]Include the Scan Info Window from CD-Speed (Disc Quality Scan)[/B]
All SL scans must contain at least 110,000 samples and DL scans must contain at least 215,000 samples.

Here is a scan that meets all requirements. :slight_smile:
